Hey fellow El Camino enthusiasts, glad to join you on this fantastic site. My user name is PEPS71 and yes my elco is a 1971. I have owned it for about 18 years now and love cruising around Stockton Ca in it. I guess you could consider me an old timer (64 yrs young). But I still love the smell of gasoline and burnt rubber!!!! If you happen to be riding around in Stockton and see a metallic blue 1971 elco Lic#PEPS71 gimme a wave or stop and shoot the breeze, if you can catch up to me hahaha!!!!
